7 year old home in damp salt air climate.
Porches rotting. I've heard every alternative to the douglas fir.
Anyone know what the solution is IF we don't want manufactured (fear of the artificial look/feel).
IPE recommended by one builder but very expensive. Mahogony said to splinter. Everyone agrees fir is a no no.
This is a porch not a deck which has open slats. We prefer the look of a porch. Any firm convictions?
